“Be Who You Are – All Is a Miracle”


“We are constantly invited to be who we are.”      (Henry David Thoreau)


“Life isn’t about finding yourself.   Life is about creating yourself.”       (George Bernard Shaw)


“Without ambition one starts nothing.   Without work one finishes nothing.  The prize will not be sent to you.   As to methods there may be a million and then some, but the principles are few.   The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods.   The man, who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.”       (Ralph Waldo Emerson)


“Never tell a … person that anything cannot be done.   God may have been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing.”      (John Andrew Holmes)


“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle.   But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth.   Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child – our own two eyes.    All is a miracle.”       (Thich Nhat Hanh)


“You were born an original.   Don’t die a copy.”       (John Mason)
